publicly released in the chris christie bridge scandal in new jersey, not only to chris christie appointees and chris christie staffers and the people who we know seem to have taken part in shutting down the lanes of that bridge as some sort of act of political retaliation last september, not just to those people, but a subpoena went out today to the governor's office itself. and to governor chris christie's campaign for re-election. we were told yesterday that there would be roughly three entities, three organizations who were getting subpoenas alongside a long list of individuals. turns out it is two entities. it's the governor's re-election campaign and the governor's office. which means that as sprawling as this scandal and this investigation have become, they are much more tightly focused than we knew on the governor himself and his immediate staff. this is not a far-flung investigation into how politics is done in new jersey, which is some of the way that it's been covered in the national press. no. at least so far, from what we can tell about the scope of the investigation, this is a

, the two governors were bob mcdonnell of virginia and chris christie, the governor of new jersey. they were the only two this year, bumper crop. joining us now is rosalyn helterman. so you have been covering this intensively right from the very start. i have to ask you in trying to sum it up that way, if you hear anything that i've gotten wrong or if this sounds basically in keeping with your understanding. >> i think you've basically got it. >> okay, thanks. was there anything in the actual indictment that you were not expecting based on your reporting thus far? >> you know, i think the indictment added a lot of nuance and a lot of details to a tale that we have unfolded pretty thoroughly over the last few months. i think one thing that surprised me and maybe a lot of other people is just how strong the indictment is. we've heard from the governor, for many months now, that he did nothing illegal, as he said again today. and i think many people in virginia were expecteding if there was an indictment, it might feel like a slap on the wrist indictment. and that's not what we got. we saw 14 f

accountable. rudy giuliani why he says clinton should learn from chris christie. well another great thing about all this walking i've been doing is that it's given me time to reflect on some of life's biggest questions. like, if you could save hundreds on car insurance by making one simple call, why wouldn't you make that call? see, the only thing i can think of is that you can't get any... bars. ah, that's better. it's a beautiful view. i wonder if i can see mt. rushmore from here. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >>> senator john mccain is outraged in the benghazi attack that took the life of four americans including ambassador chris stephens. this new report that's come out makes it absolutely crystal clear that the attack in benghazi was likely preventable. who do you hold ultimately responsible for this? who is to blame? >> well, of course the secretary of state and ultimately the president of the united states. members of the state department and others who were involved in this really unusual set of circumstances that not only led to t
